America is ruled by an elite whose status and power depend on enforcing certain falsehoods. I don’t mean the commonplace lies which generate a forgettable scandal sprung on the public like a drive by shooting. I mean core, fundamental lies, on the basis of which the regime that currently rules America maintains itself:
- that we are still unambiguously a democracy, rather than an oligarchy which looks to be heading toward a tyranny;
- that the differences between males and females are societal fictions or that women can operate in the world with no reference to the facts of biology;
- that we are a nation of immigrants; and, of course,
- the endless lies about race.
